Endless Boogie
Vol. I + II

Vol 1 & 2 (aka Black and White) by New York band Endless Boogie are the earliest, and much sought after, recordings by the band. They were quickly put together from archived recorded when they were unexpectedly asked to play the Slint-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. They are now back in print and readily available for any fans of the band who were unaware of their earliest days. On No Quarter.

Joan Shelley
Like The River Loves The Sea

Like The River Loves The Sea is the 5th (ish) album from Joan Shelley. Her plaintive folk stylings have been critically acclaimed far and wide. Whilst she may not be reinventing the wheel, she has a way of making the old refreshingly new. The songs were written in Kentucky and recorded in Iceland. Bonnie Prince Billy guests.

Chris Forsyth
All Time Present

There are lists of guitarists in the history of rock, often called Steve or Joe, who can play all of the notes at once time in 11/8 time, but y’know that their albums aren’t that great. Chris Forsyth has the guitar chops to rival any man, but he also makes good albums. All Time Present is his latest expansive, psychedelic effort. On No Quarter.

Doug Paisley
Starter Home

Doug Paisley’s fourth album, Starter Home, is his first since 2014’s Strange Feelings. Recorded in and around his native Toronto, the folk and country singer/songwriter used various friend’s home studios with many of them starring on the record too. The time lag between albums has only seen Paisley transform into an even better songwriter. LP and CD on No Quarter.

The Other Years
The Other Years

Kentucky duo The Other Years consists of Anna Krippenstapel (Joan Shelley, Freakwater) on fiddle and Heather Summers on guitar and banjo, with both singing. Their self-titled debut offers a charming and haunting suite of original songs alongside Michael Hurley’s ‘Wildgeeses’ and a few traditional renditions.

Nathan Salsburg
Third

Nathan Salsburg has allowed five years to elapse since his previous album, during which time he’s been working with Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Joan Shelley and James Elkington, among others. But on his own, Salsburg’s sound really shines, working his acoustic guitar with intricate precision, with a swirl of folk influences shining through here and there. Third is released by No Quarter.

Doug Paisley (featuring Bonnie Prince Billy)
Until I Find You

Are you really going to keep letting him look for you? Because, in his own words, Doug Paisley won’t stop Until I Find You. To double his search efforts, he has called upon the support of Bonnie “Prince” Billy. This 7” is limited edition and features Emmett Kelly on guitar, with a gentle b-side to boot.

Endless Boogie
Focus Level

The press release for Endless Boogie’s debut LP claims that it is ‘the best rock record to come out of New York City in years (maybe decades)’. That’s a very big call, especially when Focus Level doesn’t sound especially NYC. Indeed, the swampy blues-rock we have here has more in common with ZZ Top and Canned Heat than it does with, say, The Strokes. There’s a bit of The Stooges to this thing too.

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Dreaming In The Non-Dream

The press release for this is almost as long as Chris Forsyth's last album. I see the words Pere Ubu, Neu and Roxy Music in there so I'm assuming this next opus contains moments of '70s art rock amongst the blistering solo's and heat hazed Americana that he produced on earlier work. Prolific though isn't he?  

Endless Boogie
Vibe Killer

Endless Boogie craftily anticipate the comments that listeners might offer by putting the phrase in their name. And they do indeed boogie endlessly, settling into a psychedelic ZZ Top kind of vibe and then riding it all the way over the horizon. Vibe Killer is another fine collection of cosmic chug, released on CD and LP by No Quarter.

Joan Shelley
Joan Shelley

Another perfectly balanced folk record from Joan Shelley. Joan’s band on this album features Spencer Tweedy, James Elkington, Nathan Salsburg and Wilco main-man Jeff Tweedy, who also produces. Joan Shelley is a personal, sensitive and intimate set of songs from a wonderful voice. CD / LP release on No Quarter.

Joan Shelley
Cost of the Cold / Here and Whole

In anticipation of her new album here are a couple of new tracks from Kentucky based singer songwriter Joan Shelley. This finger pickin' musician plays lovely country-ish tunes with a classic voice that is not all that far away from Tracey Thorn. The music however fits snugly into the American and UK folk tradition.

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
The Rarity of Experience Pts. I & II

Chris Forsyth is a guitar virtuoso, but one who decides to use his powers for good, not evil. Which is to say that he avoids tedious technical showcases in favour of expansive, classic-feeling jams with his excellent Solar Motel Band. The Rarity of Experience Pts. I & II is released as a double CD and double LP on the No Quarter label.

Laddio Bolocko
Live & Unreleased 1997-2000

Laddio Bolocko are a remarkable and lesser-known band, whose two albums are well worth your time. But everything on Live And Unreleased is previously unheard: 3 LPs worth of old recordings from suitcases! Liner notes from Oneida’s Kid Millions: if he likes it, you should too. Also includes a DVD of live footage. On No Quarter.

Joan Shelley
Over and Even

Joan Shelley is a poetic singer-songwriter, performing perfectly-formed country / folk / americana with the help of a talented band (including back-up singing from Will Oldham). Shelley’s voice is subtle and clear, carrying the songs with a sense of delicate precision. Over And Even is released on the No Quarter label.

Zachary Cale
Duskland

A sad man with a guitar continues to channel his inner self-serious balladeer with tunes shot through the lens of late (but good) era Bob Dylan and the constancy of Nick Cave's spidery, touching songs. This guy's name is actually Zachary Cale and Duskland is his label debut, though his folkloric Americana stays its course.

Houndstooth
No News From Home

Not the eccentric label who have the audacity to release all your favourite records, but an equally exciting band of psychedelic-influenced mavericks. Houndstooth continue to define their sound with No News From Home, which sees the band follow up Ride Out The Dark with another record of confessional and strikingly personal works, made real and relatable by way of Katie Bernstein's songwriting.

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Intensity Ghost

Drone conductor Chris Forsyth formed a band off the back of last year's 'Solar Motel', enlisting members of a variety of rock bands (including the ambient-leaning War on Drugs) to help him explore his rock 'n' drone'. 'Intensity Ghost' shows that band in full force, soloing until sore on tracks that are often purely instrumental, tightly-knit but resoundingly emotive. "I Ain't Waiting" sounds like modern post-rock mixed with the psychedelic undertones of Michio Kurihara and shades of Yes.

Bob Carpenter
Silent Passage

The late Bob Carpenter finished working on 'Silent Passage' in 1974, but thanks to a contract headache on Warner Records' behalf, it wasn't released until 1984, by which time Carpenter was no longer active in the country rock scene. The record is a sinister personal collection of songs performed with Carpenter's rusty and unforgiving vocals at the front, giving the record a vibe as unsettling as a Vic Chesnutt record, but fashioned after old country traditions. Carpenter influenced folk artists as significant as Emmylou Harris and Billy Joe Shaver, who went on to cover his songs long after he'd given up on them.    Tracks: Miracle Man Silent Passage Old Friends First Light Morning Train The Believer Gypsy Boy Down Along The Border Before My Time Now And Then

Joan Shelley
Electric Ursa

Plaintive folk, anyone? Joan Shelley's plucked tunes aren't innovative, but they breathe new light into old traditions. 'Electric Ursa' brings together her compelling voice, which sounds a little like Lotte Kestner -- and sometimes recalls the lower end of Joni Mitchell's register -- with strikingly fluid guitar collaborations. 'Electric Ursa', her second solo record, was produced by Kevin Ratterman, who's also worked with the pastoral folk clown Andrew Bird. These songs are meandering, but it's evident they've been painstakingly constructed.

Nathan Salsburg
Hard For To Win And Can't Be Won

Kentucky guitarist / producer Nathan Salsburg's follow up to the debut 'ode to racehorses' album 'Affirmed' (2011). By day, Salsburg is a curator, archiving American folklore. By night, he plays lovely acoustic guitar music. 'Hard for the win and can't be won', whilst still acoustic, has a bigger, grander sound. Available on CD (No Quarter).

Nathan Salsburg
Affirmed

A record of bright and true guitar instrumentals from Kentucky musician Nathan Salsburg here. Salsburg seems like an interesting guy - he’s an expert on guitar folklore who works with (among other places) the Alan Lomax archive. Affirmed finds him pouring all of his wide-reaching knowledge into seven original compositions. So many American and British styles are touched upon here that it would be pointless to list them all. Best just to sit back and admire Salsburg’s quick fingers and way with melody. Affirmed is out via No Quarter (Doug Paisley, Endless Boogie).
